Perez In the Mix for Immigration Job

Tom Perez, Maryland's labor secretary and a former Montgomery County council member, could soon join the Obama administration, sounces tell The Post.

Immigrant advocates say the White House and the Department of Homeland Security have nearly finalized their choices to lead two major immigration agencies.

For U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, sources tell our colleague Spencer Hsu that Perez appears to be the pick. Perez, a key player on Obama's transition, was a top official in the Justice Department under President Clinton.

For DHS assistant secretary for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, all signs point to John T. Morton, a career Justice Department official who has overseen complex immigration and terrorism cases -- most recently as chief of the criminal division's domestic security section.

Wow.

Kiss goodbye to all pretenses of integrity in CIS.

The USA will become the joke of the rest of the world, even more that it is (if that's even possible) if one of the founders and a former president of CASA de Maryland gets put in charge of handing out citizenship.

My disillusionment with politics will be utterly complete if this happens, and therefor it shall.

Take heart Thardman. . .Obama will be found out to be the fake and the fraud that he is and will be removed from office. Hopefully, it will be in handcuffs and he'll be sent to prison. The lawsuits about his eligibility will not go away, and his real identity as a usurper will be known world wide. As for Perez, nothing suprised me about that corrupt illegal alien loving, and America hating fake.
